Exercise and travelling

Yes, I am looking forward to next Bond movie. It is soon October and I have booked a journey to Copenhagen. I will have two weeks off in November and I will focus some on writing again. Denmark has many famous authors and I am looking forward to deepen my knowledge about HC Andersen, Søren Kierkegaard, Karen Blixen (https://blixen.dk) among many other authors, and in addition, I have not seen “Den lille havfrue” so I will live close to her. That will be just before christmas, so I am sure Tivoli will be beautifully decorated. And maybe also learn some about Rasmussen.

Meanwhile, I go training. It is getting a little chilly, so I will focus some on cycling instead. And stretch. I need a lot of stretch right now. Today I share music by Natacha Bedingfield from my friend Anu, many years ago. Music and exercise belong together.

Sorry and confessions

When I was in Rome this summer, I saw St. Peter’s Basilica. I still have a lot to write about that journey. It was a beautiful Basilica, and I remember in particular Michaelangelo´s famous renaissance work Pietà, “The pity”, The Mary Madonna Jesus Sculpture, close to the entrance. This famous work of art depicts the body of Jesus on the lap of his mother Mary after the crucifixion. I had spent the whole day in the Vatican and this visit was at the end of the day. There was an ambiance, difficult to put words on. Some kind of holy beauty. There were also confession cabinets in the Basilica. They are so beautiful, and I think it would be good if they existed. A place where you can talk freely and say that you are sorry.

Today I have prepared myself for autumn. I have bought a book, and I also would like to watch a movie at a theatre soon. I will google to see if I can find a teaser on next Bond 007, No time to die. Meanwhile, I entertain myself with some glimpses of Zorro with adventurous scenes.

Intensive care

To be able to help others you have to take care of yourself sometimes. Today has been one of those days. I have stayed at home resting and relaxing. Thought a little about autumn among other things. I do not like when it is getting cold since I like to go training outdoors. I have had a week off exercise and now I am focusing on Hässelbyloppet. Running is freedom. As much as internet freedom.

To cheer myself up, and motivate myself, I found this song. I get energy from music. How do you refuel your batteries when they are discharged?

First autumn day

Today was my very first feeling of autumn. Little cold, leaves on the ground and a dark evening. I lit my candles when I got home. There are no apples this autumn since the flowers this spring were destroyed due to cold weather. I cannot make apple pie. I hope it will be a beautiful autumn. It can be cosy to go for walks and watch all different colours on the trees. In particular when my sweetie is with me. It was difficult for me to find some suitable music for right now. My first thought was the composer Puccini. Then I got reminded of the three tenors: Plácido Domingo, José Carreras och Luciano Pavarotti. Let’s celebrate autumn with this song.

Yesterday

Yesterday was Friday the 13th. An unlucky day in Western countries. It would be interesting to know where it derives from. It occurs when the 13th day of the month in the Gregorian calendar falls on a Friday. I know that certain airlines don’t have the row 13, and that some hotels don’t have room number 13. In South America it is not Friday but Tuesday the 13th.

In a month, Sunday the 13th of October, I have a new challenge. Hässelbyloppet. I have participated several times, and it is a nice Sunday excursion. I sure do hope that it will be a pleasant day like Tjejmilen was. Today is sunny, and I will soon go for training. I am not aiming for running fast, only to stay in shape. My yoga jogging.
